LEE BRICE is doing something this year that artists seldom accomplish. Or even try. He’s planning to perform in every single U.S. state. If all goes well, he’ll hit #50 at his show in Rome, Georgia on November 15th.
This isn’t something he set out to do. His production manager recently pointed out that he was only a handful of states away from covering all 50, and that it’s not something that happens often. Lee decided he couldn’t pass it up.
He explains, quote, “I said, ‘Well, we’re doing it.’ So we found out the states we had left, booked the shows, some of them in small clubs, and made it happen because I had to be able to say I did it.”
He adds, quote, “To get to say we played all 50 states in one year. We’re proud to be able to say we did that for the fans and for ourselves.”

“People” magazine played the game ‘Never Have I Ever’ with MADDIE & TAE. That’s where someone asks a question that starts with Never Have I Ever, and you answer if you “have” or “haven’t”.
Turns out they have a lot in common, although there are a few differences. For example, Maddie has pranked a tour mate, and wrecked her car . . . but Tae hasn’t done either of those.
They’ve both used a hairbrush as a mic while singing in their bedroom . . . and each had a boy band poster on the wall. They’ve also both been cheerleaders who skipped school, but they’ve never worn each other’s clothes.
TIM MCGRAW said he once forgot the words to BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN’s “Glory Days” . . . WHILE he was performing on stage with Bruce.
